> thanks I would guess about 6 or 7 years but it has recenly progressed to where she is pulling hair from her scalp. Before it was her lashes and then her brows. I jusst talked to her about it last night and she seemed relieved to have someone share her concerns. Have you tried any meds or herbs for this?
> She also seems depressed and unmotivated. Any advise would be greatly appreciated on what has and hasnot worked for you. THanks so much.

> ******************When I feel the urge to pull at my brows, I get a mirror and take stock of how I look. That usually stops me. I'm usually satisfied because I still have hair left. One good way for her to soothe any damage she may have done around her eyes is with cool tea bags or cucumber slices. Or if she just can't control the urge to pull--she could always divert her attention and give herself a facial.

You say she has started with her scalp hair. Believe it or not, just by changing to medicated shampoo or by keeping a healthy hair care regimen can make a big difference. For some reason I find that I am more tempted to pull on my hair when it is dirty rather than when it is nice and clean.
> I guess the most important advice I could give her (and myself) is find a diversion! Don't just sit around the house all day intending to do something. Get up and do something! Make some bread. Give yourself a pedicure. Read a book. There's probably dozens of things I could do with my time and yet I make very little of it count. If you don't have the energy today, make a list for tomorrow. Hey, I need to do that! The best of luck to you...and me!
